    Hello,

    1) Download translation file you need here https://www.8theme.com/forums/xstore-wordpress-support-forum/xstore-translation-files-sharing/
    2) Upload it using FTP or file manager plugin to wp-content/languages/themes folder
    3) Install Loco translate plugin
    4) Sync your translation https://xstore.helpscoutdocs.com/article/103-translation-files-update
    5) Finish translation of missing strings because our translations are partial.
    6) Go to Loco translate > Plugins > XStore core > translate core plugin.

    Regards

    Hello,

    1) Provide us with temporary WP Dashboard access to your site. If you translated the theme and XStore core plugin almost all the strings should be translated.
    2) To translate titles in the sidebar go to Appearance > Widgets > edit the titles of the Shop sidebar widgets.

    Hello,

    1) Some translations were marked as Fuzzy https://prnt.sc/z94krc
    2) Some translations are just missing
    3) You did not create the translation for the XStore core plugin
    https://prnt.sc/z94frj I created translation. So, translate the necessary strings, for example https://prnt.sc/z95d63
    4) Edit sidebar widgets static block to change content https://prnt.sc/z954os and sidebar widget https://prnt.sc/z959rm
    I checked translations and it works if you translate texts.

    Hi

    All your translations into the database and disables the language files. This means that any changes you make using Translation plugin -> String Translation are saved in the database, and are not going to be overwritten by updates to your theme or plugins.

    Note: Any changes you make within translation plugin will not get overwritten by plugin or theme updates since they are stored in the database rather than in your .mo and .po files. Your Theme and plugins localization settings are also set to use String Translation rather than .mo and .po files.

    Hello,

    Translation files of the theme should be placed into /wp-content/languages/themes/ folder
    plugins, like core plugin on your screenshot, in /wp-content/languages/plugins folder.
    Just close this message https://prnt.sc/zlm5n7
    WordPress copies translation files back after the update, so you won’t lose them. Anyway always do the backup of your files and DB before WP update.

    Regards
